As part of NFPA’s commitment to eliminate fire deaths and injuries through effective public education programs and information, NFPA strives to be the source for fire and life safety information. With help from our official mascot, Sparky the Fire Dog®, and our national outreach efforts, like our public education advisors, public education network, Safety Source e-newsletter, Remembering When™ program, Learn Not to Burn® programs, and our annual Fire Prevention Week campaign, NFPA is helping to make the world a safer place. Strategies are integrated throughout our programs to reach those at highest risk including young children, older adults, people in low-income communities and people with disabilities.
